Mommy Juice: Ranking Recap of “Momscow Mule Tour!”

Here at Jelly Bean Journals, we honor our very purpose as a blog by celebrating all things sweet and sour about mommyhood. We openly and honestly talk about the good, bad, beautiful, and challenging things we have experienced being mommies. Being a mom also means finding other moms to lean on for support, sisterhood, and fun! Thus, enter our ongoing Mommy Juice Series, our third Mommy Juice event and a recent Momscow Mule Tour with 37 awesome friends! Scroll down to check out details about this event and the drinks we tried. 

We took a lighthearted approach in creating our Mommy Juice series. Along with loving the term, we hope this group of posts will help fellow moms to sit back, unwind, and enjoy a cocktail. We have a deep love for mocktails, as well, so this series is sure to have something for everyone. After all, we absolutely love enjoying a favorite drink with a great friend. So, here’s to you, girl! Cheers!

Today’s Mommy Juice Pick: Moscow Mules & Moscow Mule Inspired Drinks

The Recipe: Although several of the drinks we tried varied, traditional Moscow Mules include vodka, ginger beer, lime juice, a wedge of lime, and ice cubes.

Why We Picked This Mix: After we posted our two self proclaimed Bloody Mary Tours through Casper, we continued to hear from our besties about letting them join in on our fun. So, back in 2016, we got to planning and decided to open a Margarita Tour for some of our closest friends.  Before we knew it, around 50 people signed up for our event, many of whom we’d never met!  Around six months later, we followed up the Margarita Tour with a Hang at the Hangar with Mystic Mountain Tour which was equally popular and fun and showcased a handful of cocktails by Mystic Mountain. On each Tour we heard specific requests for a Moscow Mule Tour. Your wish is our command, and our series of Mommy Juice events continued!

We ended up with some INCREDIBLE sponsors for this tour! They all went ABOVE and BEYOND for our group! We were thankful to partner with three new(ish) businesses in downtown Casper: Raccas Pizzeria NapolentanaGaslight Social, and Frontier Brewing Company and Taproom. Each establishment provided a Moscow Mule or Moscow Mule inspired drink(s), and our group loved the opportunity to give them a try and check out these new, awesome venues in our community.

We loved our night out and enjoyed awesome mixed drinks and one beer while meeting new friends and spending time with already familiar ones! Being a mommy wasn’t a requirement, and the evening included great company, drinks at each location, pizza, salad, a ranking card to provide feedback on drinks, entry to win a Moscow Mule Mug set, and transportation! Our attendees loved having their night planned for them so that they were only responsible for showing up and having fun.

Casper Executive Car and Limo provided safe transportation for our Mommy Juice friends between venues and home from the event, which came in especially handy at the end of a multi-drink tour!

#2 Frontier Brewing Company & Taproom Momma’s Golden Mule

We were treated like royalty at Frontier Brewing Company and Taproom! With the entire balcony reserved for our Mommy Juice Tour, the Momma’s Golden Mule created especially for our group, and a beer/chocolate taster passed around by one of the owners personally,  we couldn’t have asked for better service or atmosphere. Not surprisingly, the ladies commented on the service and experience at this establishment over and over! Also notable, the dad of one of the owner’s tended to our mommas all night, and he definitely won over their hearts!

Spice: 1= A Little Zing

Flavor: 3 = Yeah, That’s Flavorful!

Sweet: 1 = A Little Tart

Garnish: 1 = A Little Extra

Best service!

This is amazing!

Such a yummy beer! I loved that it was smooth but flavorful!

Don’t care for beer, but love this!

Nice changes from sweet mules!

Yummy! Easy to drink!

We also provided snacks and desserts to the group to end the night. One of our sponsors, Scratch Confections provided Smores Cupcakes for these deserving mommas. And they were AMAZING!

#3 Raccas Pizzeria Napolentana Traditional Moscow Mule or Flight

Raccas Pizzeria Napolentana provided a private room with amazing food. They offered our group the option to taste a full-size Traditional Moscow Mule or a flight of four-flavored Mules. While several people chose the Traditional Moscow Mule, most of our group selected the flight. The flight flavors included Original, Peach, Blueberry and Strawberry. Peach was definitely the favorite, with strawberry coming in a close second.

Spice: 1 = A Little Zing

Flavor: 2 = Now I Can Taste It

Sweet: 2 = Now I Got It Sweety

Garnish: 1 = A Little Extra

Alcohol Strength: 2 = Now We’re Talkin’

Peach was the best!

Yummy!

Flight was delicious. Strawberry was the best.

So fun. Great to try all.

Sweet and delicious!

For dinner, Raccas served a variety of delicious pizzas, salad and foccacia bread. As usual, their food did not disappoint, and our mommas were happy to have full bellies as they started this tour.
